Brand New Resource – 10 Ways to Belong!

Finding ways to help everyone belong, regardless of their additional needs, isn’t always straightforward.  So to help you think through this wide topic we’ve created a brand new resource: 10 Ways to Belong.  We asked some young people for their insights and, drawing on their thoughts and those of others, have come up with 10 ways for churches to be inclusive and to promote belonging for all.  This resource gives your church an opportunity to become better at welcoming and supporting those with additional needs.

It includes:

  • questions for reflection
  • points to put into action.

Why not choose 2 or 3 that are relevant  for your church and commit to improving  them in the next 12 months? Let’s help everyone to belong!
